Question no audio

John & Marcus,
I love your podcast!  I've learned so much from listening to you guys.  In one of your recent podcasts you mentioned a plugin for converting a site from Joomla to WordPress.  I'm about to begin a project like that for  It is a small community site for the first turbocharged, alcohol injected car in the U.S.  Oldsmobile only made them in 1963 and 1964.  My question is: Do you know of a good plugin for a forum?  Also, do you have any tips on how to convert the old forum threads in Joomla to a new forum in WordPress?

Thanks – and keep up the great podcast.

Best Yet *****
Being Completely new to WordPress this podcast is excellent. These guys do a great job of getting to the point and giving useful feedback. the doesn’t follow the model of so many, with a couple of buddies just rambling about mostly nothing and adding crude humor. I would be completely comfortable recommending this show to “anyone” I know. I hope they keep up the good work. i am very thankful for their show. Be sure to give them a review and rating if you agree. We seem to spend more time writing complaints than giving compliments.

very Nice and useful ***
First its obviously a vehicle to advertise their services… They plug themselves a bit much.. but the information they provide makes it worth it in the end. I listen on my ipad and often wish it was a video podcast because I want to see the plugins they review in action.. So thats dissapointing. but overall, if you're a WordPress user/developer, you should subscribe..

From our Canadian listeners
Excellent podcast – not to be missed *****
One of the best podcasts, I know of. Very focused on wordpress plugins, but that is a good thing – there are too many to try to keep track of yourself.. Keep up the good work guys.

Go-To_guys for wordpress Plugins *****
John & Marcus do a great job of showcasing useful plugins and more importantly staying away from the duds. keep up the great work.

WP Clean Up 1.2.1

The Lowdown:
I needed to clean up an older site and was actually looking to nuke it without wiping out major settings.
This one turned out to be a simple cleaner that does a nice job of cleaning up things like revisions, drafts, the large collection of spam comments one site I used it on have over 20k stored.. that's allot of space.. It also offers you the opportunity to optimize your database. all in all pretty good.

Rating 4 Dragons


Joke of the Day Advanced 1.2

Ok this one is just for fun and pretty much a complete waste of time but it is fun.. It simply adds a sidebar widget with a joke of the day from the Internet joke database. You can change from clean to dirty dependent on your desires..

Rating 3 Dragons


Bulk Delete 2.2.2

The Lowdown:
Well as I started looking for a complete nuke it solution I believe I found it here. With this plugin you can remove in stages or nuke the whole site of content.. This is useful if you have created a site with demo content and simply want it gone to start adding the real stuff. This is simple in is function you can remove everything in one shot by choosing categories or tags.. Or you can remove item by item. You can toss it into the trash if you are unsure or simply toss it all out. All in all a great little plugin to clean up the mess.

Rating 4 Dragons.
